    Step Away From The Danish: Maryland Seven-Year-Old Boy Suspended For Nibbling Lunch Tart Into Gun Shape

    We have yet another case of lunacy in our schools as part of the zero tolerance policy regarding guns. We have previously explored how teachers and school administrators are expelling or suspending students for everything from finger guns to stick figures.

    Counseling for a lethal pop tart? At what point do administrators or teachers actually get fired for such foolishness?

    Rising Voice of Gun Ownership Is Female
    Women’s participation in shooting sports has surged over the last decade, increasing by 51.5 percent for target shooting from 2001 to 2011, to just over 5 million women, and by 41.8 percent for hunting, according to the National Sporting Goods Association.
    I'm really not sure how you explain these things. Besides owning a firearm is not a terrorist act, really.  It is an enumerated protected right.

    And I do say that as a non-gun owner.  I know firsthand that female co-workers have been applying for and getting firearms permits here in New York.  The reasons vary but the biggest is personal protection.
